MICHIGAN FOOT ALL
Wolverines
to play in
Gator Bowl
Michigan will face Mississippi
State on New Year's Day in first
bowl appearance in three seasons
By TIM ROHAN
Daily Sports Editor
The decision was unanimous by the Gator Bowl
selection committee: Michigan was extended an
invitation yesterday to play in the afternoon New
Year's Day bowl against No. 21 Mississippi State.
It will be the first-ever meeting between the two
teams.
Even though the Wolverines finished the regular
season with two losses at the hands of No. 4 Wiscon-
sin and No. 6 Ohio State and a 7-5 record, Gator Bowl
President Rick Catlett and his committee liked the
matchup between these Big Ten and Southeastern
Conference schools.
"We're excited about (Michigan's) ability to move
the ball offensively," Catlett said in a phone inter-
view with The Michigan Daily yesterday. "And we
think Mississippi State plays really good defense. I
think it's going to be a classic college matchup."
Added Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon
via a press release: "We are excited about represent-
ing the Big Ten Conference in the Gator Bowl. Our
players, coaches and football support staff have
worked hard all season and this is a great reward for
them. We have great alumni and fan support in the
Sunshine State and I anticipate a large Michigan con-
tingent in Jacksonville.
The Wolverines are headed to a bowl game for the
first time in the three seasons Michigan coach Rich
Rodriguez has led the program. And it's a New Year's
Day bowl nonetheless.
Before the two-year drought, Michigan had made
33 straight bowl appearances and was a fixture on
New Year's Day. The school's rich tradition played a
factor in selecting the Wolverines over both Illinois

LSA-SG -makes push for Blue Bucks
optionat restaurants near campu s

LSA-SG president:
Similar colleges have
extensive programs
By ADAM RUBENFIRE
Daily StaffReporter
Students may not need to reach
for cash anymore at off-campus eat-
eries if the LSA Student Government
gets its way.
LSA-SG President Steven Benson
said the organization is trying to get

the University to expand its Blue
Bucks program so that the curren-
cy associated with University meal
plans is accepted at local off-campus
restaurants. Benson said the orga-
nization decided to make the push
after approximately 66 percent of
students who answered a poll ques-
tion on the'LSA-SG ballot said they
would eat at off-campus establish-
ments at least one more time a week
if they accepted Blue Bucks.
In a viewpoint printed in The
Michigan Daily last month, Benson,
along with LSA-SG Vice President

Carly Goldberg and LSA-SG Student
Life Committee Chair Caroline Can-
ning, encouraged students to vote
in favor of expanding Blue Bucks to
off-campus eateries.
In the piece, Benson, Goldberg,
and Canning wrote that because
dining halls are closed Saturday
nights, they want students to have
more choices as to where they could
use Blue Bucks.
LSA-SG got the initial idea for the
campaign after an executive trip
during the University's fall break
to Ohio State University, Cleveland

State University and the University
of Akron, Benson said.
Every university the group visited
had a similar program to the Blue
Bucks program and Benson said the
programs at all three university also
allowed students to use their Blue
Bucks equivalent at off-campus eat-
eries.
Benson added that because OSU
has successfully implemented an
off-campus meal program, the Uni-
versity should be able to sustain a
similar plan.

A2 Council, DDA working to shift
burden for parking administration

The upside of honesty: Experts say 'U'
error policy shown to drop claims costs

If passed, DDA
would be responsible
for setting rates
* By JORDAN STEIGER
For the Daily
The Ann Arbor City Council
and the Downtown Development
Authority are working together

to develop a proposal to transfer
decision-making responsibility
regarding parking in downtown
Ann Arbor from City Council to
the DDA.
Though officials have already
drafted the proposal, they
haven't taken any further action
to put the plan into effect.
In crafting the proposal, City
Council proposes transferring
its power to enforce parking

decisions - like setting rates
and enforcement hours - to the
DDA.
The proposal stems from a
2005 agreement between the
DDA and City Council in which
the DDA gave $10 million to
the city over a span of 10 years
to fund parking enforcement.
However, city officials say they
no longer have sufficient fund-

UMHS program
encourages doctors
to admit mistakes
to patients
By BRIENNE PRUSAK
Daily StaffReporter
Instead of keeping quiet, Uni-
versity doctors are encouraged to

inform patients of medical errors
thanks to a University of Michigan
Health System program that will
soon celebrate its tenth anniver-
sary.
The program, which encour-
ages all hospital employees to pro-
actively look for medical mistakes,
began in 2001 because of the work
of Richard Boothman, the chief
risk officer of UMHS.
After looking though years of
medical files and concluding that

honesty is vital to the future of
medicine, Boothman said he real-
ized the University hospital would
be a perfect place to start a pro-
gram.
"I didn't bring ethics to this
place. It was always a highly ethi-
cal place," said Boothman, refer-
ring to UMHS.
The goals of the program are to
keep patients safe and help doctors
address errors instead of firing
